Maybe you have a musician, TV show, or social media account that you’d consider a a “guilty pleasure”. Why guilty? Maybe it’s not good for your soul or your relationship with God.
But what if what you’re guilty of is enabling sinful behavior?
Artists, celebrities, and influencers are people just like you and me. They make good decisions and they make bad decisions. When their bad decisions are spread as products far and wide, and they land on your phone, computer, or television, you have a choice to make. And Fr. Mark-Mary would suggest that that choice is a choice of love over indifference.
Meet Fr. Mark-Mary
Father Mark-Mary was ordained as a Franciscan Friar of the Renewal (CFR) in 2018 and lives at a friary in the Bronx.
The mission of the CFRs is to wholeheartedly embrace Jesus through fidelity to the Church and her Sacraments. Paired with their commitment to prayer, contemplation, and study of Sacred Scripture, the CFRs serve those around them, especially the poor, in the footsteps of Christ.
